Right now, I'm hitting it with the 2000, but I don't have the 3000. I'll see what it looks like after the 2000 and compound, then depending on the results, buy the 3000

Is this what you're normally supposed to do?

hopefully. The thing is, it needs to be leveled and all the scratches from wet sanding removed in order to shine.

Oh ok. Would it be at Wal-mart? There isn't really a target nearby. Also, thanks so much for the help!
